    Alrighty, I have tried to give the first crack of customizing my cash set to the original designer out of courtesy, but just can't seem to get a response. I'm sure there's a valid reason, but I'm running out of time. SO here's what I want:
    original PCR design, but would like to see the colors inverted/reversed from the original and the word "PRIVATE" changed to say "Jason's", to go on my solids cash set. This is my first custom request, willing to pay and provide sample set, not sure if permission is needed from the original designer or even if PI has an in house person that could/would do it? If not, I'd be willing to do a completely new design from scratch, but time is of the essence, as the GB order is being placed May 5. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

    I take it these are for the Palm Imports group buy using the artwork as seen on the GB thread?

    Yes the GB that is closing May 5. I've tried every way I know how to get in touch with Garyon, but maybe he's on vacation? If he comes back in time, I don't want to step on anyone's toes or cross lines as far as property goes, but that's what I'd like to do as far as design. I just want something to differentiate the cash solid labels from the tournament striped chips' labels. Even a negative image might work, can't imagine it would be difficult, even the word Jason's and Private have the exact # of 7 characters, so spacing shouldn't be an issue

    Yes, through email, PM and his website. Also had another CT member email him as well and he got a response, so I guess I'm waiting on him unless he is busy and will give permission to modify the design to someone else. I am now down to 9 days before the order. Not sure what's going on really, and definitely not trying to put anyone's business on blast. Figured maybe he'd see the forum posts. I'm just excited about getting my first starter set, as is my league, we're sick of playing with NJ Skulls.

    If I don't get a response by tomorrow I'll scrap the modified PCR design and get something made up from scratch. Is it fair to accept bids and/or designs before deciding who to go with? I want to be smart and fair with whomever I choose.

    That's all I would be able to do for you in this case, a design from scratch if Gary did all the artwork in the first place and even that might be a push for me time wise.
